The City of Windsor Parks and Recreation staff are happy to announce that the ice is ready for skating at Charles Clark Square, while extra hours have been added to the already-open Lanspeary Lions Rink.
“This is a difficult time, and many individuals and families in Windsor are looking for safe options to get outdoors and participate in healthy physical activities. Extending Bright Lights Windsor and increasing our outdoor skating availability will help give folks options to stay physically and mentally healthy at a time when we need it most. Kudos to the City teams working to extend and expand these options as we all continue to do our part to blunt the impacts of Omicron,” says Mayor Drew Dilkens
Rental opportunities are being expanded during the modified restrictions due to increased demand at the Lanspeary Lions Rink to include 1 p.m. to 4 p.m., and 5 p.m. to 11 p.m. Monday through Friday as well as weekends from 8 a.m. to 11 p.m.
